The OC Fair came and went in the blink of an eye. Fair life is set in a fast paced environment with most of us working 22-hour days. Although the long days were grueling, it was all worth it and paid off in a big way. Some of our models were so popular that we could not keep them in stock. We were continuously bringing in boxes to restock the booth everyday, which was an awesome feeling. We were all overjoyed with the love and support we received from many of our returning customers, as well as new ones. Below is a snapshot of what happened this year at the OC fair.
The first week of the fair was hot and humid. Sales were slow and down compared to the previous year but we stayed positive. We made a few small adjustments the following week and boom, the sales began to flood in.
We wrapped up the fair with having sold twice as many watches as the previous year. This would not have been possible with out the help of, Westley's father, Steve Noble. He volunteered his time and happily showed up everyday when Rick and Wes were not available. Thank you so much Steve! We were truly blessed to have had your help.
Pictured below is the Pursuit2, which is a new model that was made made available for pre-order at the fair. Soon our site will also be offering pre-orders as well. You definitely won't want to miss out on this one. Stay tuned.
One of the awesome things about the OC fair is you never knew who would be stopping by your booth. Shawn Moore, one of the owners of the Long Beach clothing co., stopped by and took an interest in our brand. The next thing we knew we were setting up shop in his Bixby Knolls location. This opportunity has now lead us to having our watches being featured in our first retail store, and we are truly humbled. Thanks Shawn, Jay, Kenji and the rest of the Long Beach Clothing Co. crew for making this happen!
So if you're in the area make sure to stop by the store and check us out!

We also wanted to make a shout out to Mike Baldasare for stopping by our booth. He co-starts on a reality show called Pool Kings, on the DIY network. He took to our brand and purchased the gun metal Offset and filmed his next episode wearing it! The episode is set to air in early September, so keep an eye out for that timepiece!
